Highlights

  • League of Legends update 14.8 focuses on pro-oriented changes for MSI prep.
  • Balance adjustments made to 13 champions include both nerfs and buffs.
  • Skarner's rework aims to improve jungle power and top lane performance.

Riot Games has unveiled the League of Legends update 14.8 patch notes, introducing a plethora of changes and adjustments to champions and game modes, while also adding new skins. This update is particularly focused on preparing for MSI (Mid-Season Invitational), with a spotlight on pro-oriented changes to ensure a balanced and competitive environment for the upcoming tournament. However, casual League of Legends players will also find several tweaks and improvements tailored to enhance their gaming experience.

League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game developed by Riot Games, where players control unique champions in teams to destroy the enemy Nexus. Through regular updates, the game has evolved with new champions, balance changes, gameplay adjustments, seasonal events, and esports developments. These updates ensure ongoing engagement and excitement for players while maintaining League of Legends' position as a leading title in the gaming industry with a thriving competitive scene.

One of the major highlights of League of Legends update 14.8 is the balance adjustments made to several champions. Notable changes include nerfs to champions like Azir, Braum, Zac, and Zeri, aimed at fine-tuning their power levels. Conversely, buffs have been granted to 13 champions, including Akali, Draven, Galio, Graves, Hwei, Jarvan IV, Jhin, Kai'sa, LeBlanc, Olaf, Ryze, Sylas, and Thresh. These buffs encompass a range of adjustments, from base stat changes to increased damage on abilities, reduced cooldowns, critical damage increments, health boosts, and improvements to passive skills. These changes aim at balancing the League of Legends competitive multiplayer scene.

In addition, champion Skarner has undergone significant modifications. It recently underwent a rework, revealing a noticeable imbalance with low jungle power yet strong performances in the top lane. Consequently, adjustments have been made to Skarner's recommended jungle runes and items, coupled with refinements to his Q and W abilities, all aimed at elevating his overall performance and viability across different roles.

Upcoming League of Legends Blood Moon Skins

The update also introduces changes to Baron Nashor, one of the game's formidable objectives. Baron's attacks have been buffed to make them more impactful while maintaining a balanced level of challenge for players. Furthermore, League of Legends' recent addition called Voidgrubs has undergone adjustments in terms of spawn time and rewards.

Additionally, a popular collection of League of Legends skins returns with Blood Moon Fiddlesticks, Blood Moon Zed, and Blood Moon Zyra, set to be available on April 17. Alongside these additions, players might also notice that the ARAM mode has undergone balance changes, affecting champions such as Illaoi, Leona, Nautilus, Xerath, Ziggs, Vi, and Zyra. League of Legends persists in evolving with each update, delivering a dynamic gameplay experience to players worldwide.
